In a live technical webinar, customers of Swagelok Northern California received a 30 minute briefing from Swagelok field engineer and regulator expert Eric Kayla.  Kayla discussed what pressure reducing regulators do and how they work, including:

  • Regulator operating principles: the balance of forces
  • Key components: sensing and mechanisms, hard vs. soft seats 
  • Advantages of a two stage regulator
  • Common regulator terms

In January, he returns with a live detailed session on how to match the pressure reducing regulator to the job.
